Custom Patch Hats

Boston Celtics (-2) vs. Memphis Grizzlies

For our three hand-picked games to monitor from a betting perspective on Thursday, it’s hard to argue that Boston and Memphis isn’t the best one. Ja Morant is a showstopper already in his young career. The Celtics have been the best team in the Eastern Conference over the last six weeks with an elite two-way balance. In Boston, we’re actually going to roll with the underdogs. Betting against Morant hasn’t been a great exercise all season long, and he’s looking like the next in line with Derrick Rose and Allen Iverson for must-watch point guards. Hammer Morant and the Grizzlies in this spot.

Pick: Grizzlies +2

PrizePicks Power Play: Ja Morant over 29.5 points, Jayson Tatum over 29.5 points, Steven Adams over 10.5 rebounds, Robert Williams over 10 rebounds

Dallas Mavericks (-2) vs. Golden State Warriors

This line is understandable after the Warriors choked away a huge lead to Dallas in their last matchup, but is it going to happen again? That’s doubtful. Plus, Klay Thompson is back alongside Stephen Curry. On the road, Curry and the Warriors always show up when the lights are brightest. Luka Doncic will put on a show for the Mavericks, but wager on the underdog Warriors.

Pick: Warriors +2

PrizePicks Power Play: Luka Doncic over 30.5 points, Stephen Curry over 24.5 points, Jalen Brunson over 15.5 points, Klay Thompson over 2.5 threes

Los Angeles Clippers (-2) vs. Los Angeles Lakers

The battle for Los Angeles definitely lacks luster this time around. There's no Kawhi Leonard and Paul George for the Clippers, but the Lakers are becoming seemingly irrelevant in real time. LeBron James is being asked to carry a poorly constructed roster at age-37, which definitely shouldn’t be happening at this stage of his career. However, we are going to go with the Lakers to get this one done against the Clippers. It’s hard to bet against LeBron, and I’m expecting him to show up big-time tonight.

Pick: Lakers +2

PrizePicks Power Play: LeBron James over 28.5 points, Reggie Jackson over 18.5 points, Ivica Zubac over 8.5 rebounds, Russell Westbrook over 6.5 rebounds
